You still have time to take part in the US 2019 IPMS National convention at Chattanooga, Tennessee, As today, August 10, 2019 is the last day. Whether it is vendors
like
Free Time Hobbies, Tom's Modelworks or Wingnut Wings, there is a huge variety. Of course there is the ship competition. Here is Pennsylvania's own Bob
Cicconi
's build of the Trumpeter 1:350 scale Italian Heavy Cruiser, RN Zara. On the IPMS entry sheet, contestants can list any modifications that they made to the
kit. In the case of Bob's
Zara, he converted the full hull kit to waterline, scratch-built the upper mainmast and added stretched sprue rigging.
